Daniel 8:3-14 I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns, and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. 

Daniel 8:20 As for the ram that you saw with the two horns, these are the kings of Media and Persia.

I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.

As I was considering, behold, a male goat came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground.

Daniel 8:21a And the goat is the king of Greece.

And the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. 

Daniel 8:21b And the great horn between his eyes is the first king.

He came to the ram with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the canal, and he ran at him in his powerful wrath. I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns. And the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power. Then the goat became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken…

Daniel 8:22a As for the horn that was broken…

…and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.

Daniel 8:22b …in place of which four others arose, four kingdoms shall arise from his nation, but not with his power.

Out of one of them came a little horn

Daniel 8:23 And at the latter end of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their limit, a king of bold face, one who understands riddles, shall arise.

…which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven. And some of the host and some of the stars it threw down to the ground and trampled on them. 

It became great…

Daniel 8:24-25 His power shall be great—but not by his own power; and he shall cause fearful destruction and shall succeed in what he does, and destroy mighty men and the people who are the saints. By his cunning he shall make deceit prosper under his hand, and in his own mind he shall become great. Without warning he shall destroy many.

even as great as the Prince of the host.

Daniel 8:25a And he shall even rise up against the Prince of princes…

And the regular burnt offering was taken away from him, and the place of his sanctuary was overthrown. And a host will be given over to it together with the regular burnt offering because of transgression, and it will throw truth to the ground, and it will act and prosper. 

Daniel 8:25b and he shall be broken—but by no human hand. 

Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to the one who spoke, “For how long is the vision concerning the regular burnt offering, the transgression that makes desolate, and the giving over of the sanctuary and host to be trampled underfoot?” And he said to me, “For 2,300 evenings and mornings. Then the sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state.”

Daniel 8:26 The vision of the evenings and the mornings that has been told is true, but seal up the vision, for it refers to many days from now.”

When Does It End???

Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 3:20 Now the man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all the living.

In the Hebrew, Eve means “life”.

Bible Wiki

And so it begins…

Genesis 4:8 Cain spoke to Abel his brother. And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.

Malachi 2:10 Do we not all have one father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously each against his brother so as to profane the covenant of our fathers?

Matthew 24:12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.

Millennial Kingdom: Prince of Peace

Micah 4:3 And He will judge between many peoples and render decisions for mighty, distant nations. Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation will not lift up sword against nation, and never again will they train for war. See also Isaiah 2:4.

swords-plough

The statue above was given to the United Nations from the defunct Soviet Union. The statue is to symbolize the ideals of the verse above. The UN does not have the first clue about achieving peace. Violence and war have exploded across the planet on their watch.

Family and friends lost to death or permanently injured. Dreams never realized. Mourning, pain, and tears left as a consequence. Lives changed forever…

Look at the instruments of war in the three verses below: chariots, horses, bow, swords, boots, cloaks. These were the weapons of war in Biblical times.

Think of all the money that is spent on war and casualties today. Per Nationalpriorities.org, the United States spent roughly $600 billion on the military budget and $160 billion on veteran’s benefits in 2015. This includes military schools and war colleges. Funds are required to run the Department of Defense and the Pentagon. Dollars are spent on hardware (tanks, planes, missiles, ships, etc.), supplies (gas, food, water, etc.), and clothing.

Zechariah 9:10 I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim and the horse from Jerusalem; and the bow of war will be cut off. And He will speak peace to the nations; and His dominion will be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.

Hosea 2:18b …I will remove all weapons of war from the land, all swords and bows, so you can live unafraid in peace and safety.

Isaiah 9:5 For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult, and cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.

In the Millennial Kingdom, peace will have no boundaries and will be extended throughout the world. Moneys and resources designated for war will be redeployed to economic growth, technology, and advancement. There will be no more military surplus stores.

There will be no need for border patrols and walls. Isaiah 60:18 Violence will not be heard again in your land, nor devastation or destruction within your borders; but you will call your walls salvation, and your gates praise.

Security systems and guard dogs will be a thing of the past. Isaiah 32:17-18 And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever. Then my people will live in a peaceful habitation, and in secure dwellings and in undisturbed resting places.

Isaiah 66:12a For thus says the LORD, “Behold, I extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream.”

Humanity has never known a time without bloodshed or war. It started immediately in Genesis 4 when Cain killed Abel. It has only escalated till now in 21st century culture: murder, stabbings, terrorism, missiles, invasions, wars, rumors of wars… You know the drill. We watch, read, and hear about it every day. For now (February 2016), we will keep fighting.

But, human hostility will come to an end. Isaiah 9:6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6 A Child is Born, Part 2

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , on June 29, 2013 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 9:6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

…and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor…He will be marvelous. Isaiah 28:29 confirms this as well. This also comes from the LORD of hosts, Who has made His counsel wonderful and His wisdom great.

Mighty God… The Hebrew language indicates He is a man, strong and brave. There are military implications in the reference.

Eternal Father…The Hebrew word for eternal is ‘ad. It is defined by Strong’s Concordance as: perpetuity, forever, continuing future, ancient (of past time), forever (of future time), of continuous existence, forever (of God’s existence). God is eternal. Psalm 90:2 Before the mountains were born or You gave birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.

…Prince of Peace This title pictures the king as one who establishes a safe socio-economic environment for his people. It hardly depicts Him as a meek individual, for He establishes peace through military strength. His people experience safety and prosperity because their invincible king destroys their enemies (NET Bible). True peace is hard to imagine in today’s world. Think of the qualities of a true peace: completeness (in number), safety, soundness (in body), welfare, health, prosperity, quietness, tranquility, contentment, absence of war, friendship of human relationships, and a covenant relationship with God.

Shalom…
